5:01 pm
that means not a whole lot of frigid air locked in place ahead of this storm, and that means a wintery mess for tomorrow morning. in the the spotty light showers of wet snow, maybe a touch of of sleet, freezing rain during the late evening. but tomorrow morning rain southeast, a mix central, and wet snow higher terrain, central and north. i'll have a timeline and much more in a few minutes. jean: with another storm approaching,s and highway workers are urging drivers to slow down. since thanksgiving of 2014, 21 parked state police cruisers have been hit. five troopers have been hurt. just this week a 31-year-old derry woman stuck on the side of the road was hit and killed, the same day a trooper was hurt on 89 when his cruiser was struck
5:02 pm
hasn't been found. >> we probably worry more about getting hit by a car than getting shot most ties. we're eight times more likely to get killed or injured by a motor vehicle while we're on the side of the road than we are shot. jean: this snow is great news for the ski areas, in a few minutes we'll focus on what they're expecting. you can track this storm with live radar, and hourly forecasts on our website and free mobile app and by following our weather team on facebook and twitter. josh: we do have breaking news coming out of concord, in the middle of a war on heroin and an opioid crisis, the state's drug czar says he's stepping down from the position next month. tom griffith has the details. tom: wozmak did space criticism from those who say he didn't do enough to reach out to doctors and was slow to contact police departments. today he said he would step down
5:03 pm
that's when a one-year grant for the position ends. wozmak say during that time the state expanded programs, treatment options and worked to make narcan more available. governor hassan says wozmak worked tirelessly to strengthen the state's response to the opioid crisis. but the state g.o.p. chair says his tenure was marked with ineptitude. the governor's commission on alcohol and drug abuse prevention voted last fall to continue funding it. tom griffith, wmur news 9. jean: tonight controversy over a statement made by the chair of the hampstead budget committee about a school shooting scenario. some are saying the comments made during a budget meeting are disgusting and offensive. kristen carosa is live in hampstead with the details. reporter: these comments were made just last night here in hampstead and since that time there's been outrage in this community. let's show you video from the
5:04 pm
comments came during a discussion about school renovations at the hampstead central school. according to the school superintendent, it was a safety discussion about eliminating mobile classrooms behind the school and having all students remain inside the main building it. during that time advisory budget committee chairman tejada said renovations would not make the school any safer, describing to everyone at the meeting how he would commit mass murder at the school and further stated what a field day it would be. the school superintendent has placed a no trespass on him, which means he cannot go onto any school grounds, field or playgrounds. >> based on my marine corps training, if i wanted to do harm, i wouldn't do it while they're going to the main building, i would wait until recess, i would hide in the wood behind them and have a field day.
5:05 pm
how someone goes from a discuss on a bond article talking about construction at the school to detailing how he would commit a mass shooting at our elementary schools. i really can't speak to him as to how he got there. for my part i was very disturbed. >> disturbing, disgusting, outraged. both as a parent of children in the school district and as the superintendent. unacceptable, inappropriate, and just outrageous. reporter: we attempted to speak to jorge this afternoon, he did not come to the door or answer his phone. kristen carosa, wmur news 9. josh: now to commitment 2016 coverage, and the campaign trail in new hampshire remains a crowded one. one night after a republican debate in iowa, two candidates who did not qualify to participate on the main stage under the party rules continue to plug along here in the granite state and were eager to
5:06 pm
did and didn't happen last night. >> new hampshire took him seriously from the beginning. reporter: a nice draw for fiorina, as she notes without a big bag of money she's managed to stay with the republican pack. >> i'm tied forfeit in new hampshire with i a bunch of governors who were on the other debate stage last night. reporter: after being the so-called undercard, feerpa offered her take on what occurred on the main stage, particularly the back and forth between donald trump and ted cruz. >> what i saw in the second debate was a nasty fight between two insiders trying to cast themselves as outsiders. but that fight had everything to do with their power and position, nothing to do with the american people. >> we thought it was unfair what the national party did. they excluded one of the main candidates in the race. reporter: not invited to the main debate stage for the first time this cycle, senator rand paul declined a seat at what
5:07 pm
table on thursday. in a form of protest, paul says the national party is damaging the selection process by choosing the participants by use a national formula instead of the polls in state who will offer their opinions first. >> the elections are state by state and they're won state by state. so i object to the party using a heavy hand or an iron fist on this thing, because really we've worked very hard for two years, the voters and it unfair for them to keep us out of the debate. reporter: both fiorina and paul will stay busy tonight, fiorina has a town haul in milford at 6:30, paul has one in hollis at 7:00 and both have several events planned around the state tomorrow as well. several other candidates were in new hampshire today, after wrapping up on the main stage of last night's debate. we're going to hear from them at 6:00. >> new hampshire voters are coming out to these events because they're doing a civic duty. they're trying to vet the candidates, ask the tough questions, ask the followup
5:08 pm
the american process. that's good for the other 49 states. josh: as we approach the 100th anniversary of new hampshire's primary, many say the threat to this tradition is growing. this stay we'll bring you an encore presentation of first in the nation, 100 years of tradition, join us sunday at 4:00 for that broadcast. or you can stream it any time on wmur.com or with our mobile app. jean: an unsettling friday selloff, stocks plunged again today, down more than 8% in two weeks. wall street hasn't seen a new years slide like this ever. and here are today's closing numbers. the dow losing 390 points, setting below the 16,000 mark at 15988. the nasdaq down 126 points to 4,488. the s&p off by 41. the steep losses started immediately today and just got worse. at one point the dow was down more than 500 points.
5:09 pm
of oil is one big factor. oil has now fallen below $30 a barrel. the lowest it's been since 2003. adding to that, a shaky global economy, especially in china which has seen its own market take a beating. retail and manufacturing numbers aren't helping as investors brace for volatility not seen in years. >> are we likely to something you would call a crash in china? or is this just a slowing economy over there? those are questions we can't answer, and the inability to answer those and the lack of transparency is turning worry into panic for some traders. reporter: experts are telling long-term investors not to be too worried. they point to strong job growth and a recovering housing market that could help financial markets get back in line with the u.s. economy. josh: in less than 24 hours the patriot begin their march for a fifth super bowl trophy, they

>> and a state program pays off, at 6:00 the training that you got people working incredibly long hours. median family income today -- $4,000 less than it was in 1999. the bottom line of this economy is that it is rigged. what this campaign is about is to demand that we create an economy that works for all of us rather than a handful of billionaires. if you work 40 hours a week in america, you should not live in poverty. i'm bernie sanders,

[ horn honks ] okay, this is u.s. cellular, and this is verizon. now, same phones, but with u.s. cellular you get 6 gigs of 4g data for only $40 per month -- $20 less than verizon. and u.s. cellular's network was built to work in places like out here, here, and here. so, with all of that, why would you ever go to verizon? switch to u.s. cellular now and get 6 gigs of data for just $40 a month plus get $300 back. let's not overthink this. josh: more breaking news now. convicted boston marathon bomber
5:15 pm

5:16 pm
temperatures seasonably cool by this afternoon. on radar all is quiet and should remain that way through 8:00. beyond that time frame, there may be a couple of mixed, sleet, freezing rain, even wet snow showers that try to develop in any one given community south of the lakes region. this should not be a widespread issue and we'll have to wait until the predawn hours to get in. the next storm, spinning through the carolinas in towards southern parts of virginia. heavy rain on average -- looks like the heaviest precipitation will be in southeastern parts of new hampshire and points south and east once we get through later morning. right now temperatures are in the 20's and low 30's. not all that cold, so we do have that good chance even in parts of central new hampshire to get in on a wintery mix when the storm does move on in.
5:17 pm
temperature fall, low to mid 20's north. right around freezing at the coast. here's the reason for the wintery mix as opposed to all snow. there's just not a lot of frigid air on the map over any portion of the northeast. it's locked north of the border, and that's where it should remain this weekend. in terms of the timeline, the next few hours mainly dry. after 8:30, 9:00, through midnight, early a couple very light showers of sleet, rain or as to. that means any unstreeted surface may be slick. different story by six or seven in the morning, that's when steadier rain moves in, temperatures will be right near freezing, so there could be pocket of freezing rain around manchester, hooksett, concord as well, but mainly rain or freezing rain. you get interest the mix of wet snow, sleet and rain from the lakes region west and primarily
5:18 pm
once the storm really cranks up mid to late morning and precipitation increases, the higher you are in elevation and the farer in north and west you are, the better chance of accumulating snow until the storm pulse away later on in the afternoon. in terms of accumulation at this point looks like a fairly low one at the coast with primarily rain and a little wet snow at the end. so a coating to maybe an inch manchester towards the shore. 3 to 6 lakes region points north. but notice in between, one to three, a sloppy mess concord into the monadnock region. by the way, 3 to 6, great news for ski areas. 'here's haley. hayley: the ski areas, snowmobilers, cross country skiers, very happy to see that 3 to 6 inches, even in the higher summits and peaks, there could be a couple inches higher than that. and there's another chance of snow, but i wanted to give you forecast.
5:19 pm
those areas. it will be tricky traveling coming up through southern new hampshire. temperatures in the 30's. but then on sunday, bright, beautiful, that will probably be the pick day to enjoy skiing with sunshine, temperatures in the 20's. for monday, cold, with another round of snow showers maybe some snow squalls too. so ski areas very happy about all of this. for more on this colder air coming in, back to mike. mike: the reason why the gentlemen drives it in our direction in between now and then especially by late sunday night and monday morning there could be a brief period of snow showers, even snow squalls, so you'll have to watch out for that early on monday. highs tomorrow running in the mid to upper 30's. but beyond that it does get a little cooler sunday, as haley mentioned, and then get ready for monday, tuesday and wednesday as the real arctic chill builds on in. very sloppy across the state tomorrow morning, for early afternoon it dries out quickly.
5:20 pm
heading to the pats game, it will be dry, sunday looks good, snow showers monday, and frigid through mid-week. jean: thanks, mike. commitment 2016 coverage is next. candidates weigh in on the question of health care. josh: and more details about the data breach at a popular hotel chain. which hotels in our area have
5:21 pm
josh: now to commitment 2016, and our question tonight for presidential candidates, we asked republicans to weigh in on what the federal government can do to ensure access to quality affordable health care. >> i think that obamacare is probably set us back. one thing we know for sure that is obamacare has become a drag economy. now if you go over 49 employees suddenly you're subject to it so now everybody is working part-time. you've got the nationalization of health care, which means the costs are not going to be controlled. i think we need to go back to a market based economy on a market based health care system. we could use medicare to be sure, we can use medicaid for poorer citizens, but we've got to encourage business toes offer decent health care as part of a benefit program. which obamacare has obliterated.

5:22 pm
case where people can understand the quality and value of the care that they can get and the accessibility and affordability of it. but by nationalizing the problem we've set health care back in this country, i think there. are some good things about obamacare and we ought to maintain those, like pre-existing conditions, but still it's time for a change. >> i think one thing the government can do is quit trying to fix it with foolish policies that are designed by a committee of a bunch of special interest groups like the -- obamacare was hobbled together by people that had an interest in a certain piece of it. what we need to focus on is cures and prevention. as president i'd like to declare war on cancer, heart disease, diabetes and alzheimer's and pledge to e rad eradicate those diseases in 10 years.
tv-commercial tv-commercial
5:23 pm
on human lives and we need to be putting the focus on prevention, not intervention. we'll never be able to catch up with the cost of intervention. >> we need to have a health care system that basically rewards the practice of medicine in such a way that it's oriented at quality and not quantity. today in america it's all about quantity. what we need to do is lower costs and make sure that we give incentives to the providers, the primary care doctor and the health plan so that we can have quality care at lower prices, and that is very achievable in this country. >> get the government out of it, the government is not good at distributing anything. i think what i'd have is the marketplace. america is great because of capitalism, freedom to trade what you want, sell what you want. so if we had more freedom in the marketplace, you'd have a better product, you'd have
5:24 pm
and would be the best in the world again. josh: you can always find this series and coverage of the primary campaign on wmur.com. jean: one town says it found several skimmers on gas pumps. what you need to know, ahead. josh: you're never too old to

5:26 pm
mike: after a quiet and cool one today, a wintery mix changes all that later on tonight into tomorrow. we'll look at the timeline and projected totals. josh: we're learning more about the plans for this medical marijuana grower, the first cultivation site licensed in new hampshire. jean: a surprise for officers during this man's arrest, what they say he admitted to having in his car. josh: and wal-mart, just the latest retailer to announce closurees, so how does new england fare when it comes to these cuts? >> no one covers new hampshire like we do. now wmur news 9 at 5:30. josh: we're on the storm watch again tonight as a mix of wintery weather makes its way toward new hampshire. welcome back, folks, i'm josh mcelveen. jean: and i'm jean mackin.
5:27 pm
some spots will see snow from this, some will get rain. but mike haddad says no one in new hampshire will be able to dodge this messy weather. mike: that's right. we're going to get rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow all over the next 12 to 18 hours. fairly quiet right now, but some increasing clouds. anything. could be a few mixed showers mid to late evening, so just be aware of that in any one given community you could see some slick conditions developing, but not a widespread issue. most of the action remains to our south, approaching d.c. at this hour with some heavy rain. by the time that moves in towards new hampshire, there will be just enough cold air for wet snow for some, sleet, freezing rain for others, and rain yet for others. here's a look at the map by early tomorrow morning. notice the area in green from especially concord points south through manchester, nashua, over towards salem, up through exeter and portsmouth and even towards rochester, too warm to support anything but rain, there could
tv-commercial
5:28 pm
rain mixed in, but the snow and sleet line not too far away. so where does that end up for the rest of the day and what about accumulations between now and later tomorrow. we'll look at that straight ahead. jean: new details about the site for cultivation of medical marijuana in the granite state. we have more details about the facility and the timeline for operations for all of that we go to jennifer crompton. reporter: tonight the department of health and human services confirms that it started mailing out identification cards to 176 qualified granite staters who applied for permission to legally purchase medicinal marijuana. but before it's available in this state it has to be grown and cultivated here. rochester is one of three locations where that will happen. growing and dispensing operations for cannabis are numerous in colorado. but there's never been one in new hampshire. not even since medical marijuana

5:29 pm
but there soon will be, this mill building in rochester home to sanctuary atc's medical cannabis cultivation operation. the first of three to get state approval, complete with a lab and commercial kitchen. >> when you talk about the products, we're talking just not flower products, but edible products, tinctures. so there's many different products that we make. reporter: products will be given to the dispensary in plymouth, it should be open by april. it something that many neighbors living near the location on spaulding avenue actually embrace. >> i have a son-in-law that has a.l.s. and he does have a medical marijuana card through maine, and it helps him immensely, and it doesn't worry down the street. reporter: the process between
5:30 pm
very smooth. >> we work closely with the executives on developing their security plans and their security for their employees, and the product that they're going to be manufacturing. and we've been involved with them every step of the way. reporter: the department of health and human services also confirms tonight that it has plans to visit another cultivation site in manchester next week, that one, that third timetable. but that means that two cultivation centers and three dispensaries should be open in new hampshire this spring. jennifer crompton, wmur news 9. josh: senator shaheen is calling on congress to pass an emergency bill to deal with the heroin epidemic. she joined maine senator king at work hospital today, they say the proposal would provide emergency funding to address
5:31 pm

5:32 pm
you're at the pumps so your pin number doesn't get compromised, or go in the store to carry out your transaction. jean: two hampstead siblings are collecting lip balm for children battling cancer, the effort is in memory of their brother who passed away four years ago at the age of 5. cole's lips were chapped in the hospital from his medications, it's a common side effect. his father says this small gesture is making a difference to children worldwide. if you'd like to help, is there a dropoff location at bree's ice cream in east hampstead. josh: a bumpy day on wall street, we'll tell you where things wound up and what's behind all this when we come back. jean: also, several boston hotels were hit by mal wear put on company computers, what travelers need to know. josh: wal-mart is closing hundreds of stores. does this affect any locations in new hampshire? mike: the next storm developing and racing in our direction, so by this time tomorrow, it will

5:40 pm
affordable health care. >> repeal obamacare and replace it with a law that allows every american to control their own health care dollars, whether it's a tax credit or tax-free money from your employer, and you can use it to buy any health insurance you want from any company in america across state lines. >> repeal obamacare which is inflating dramatically the cost of health care, punishing people who don't buy health care. 20 million americans will pay taxes not to have health care because of obamacare, they're going to pay fines. less than 10 million people have been covered, premiums are going up, deductibles are going up, it's a disaster and we need to repeal it and we need to put in place what will work. not another 3,000 page bill telling the government telling health care how to set up the health care system. but allowing the market to work by treating everybody treating every individual fairly under
5:41 pm
so a provision that makes sure the tax code treats those that have employer provided insurance and those that don't equally and making sure that everyone will have access to insurance. >> you have to go to a private system, a system that can be much less expensive, much better. if you look right now we have to take all of the lines away from the different states because right now the insurance companies have essentially states. compete. obamacare has been great for obama and it's been great, although not for his health insurance, but it's been great for obama and really great for the insurance companies, they're making a fortune on it. but it's got to be repealed and replaced. we have so many better alternatives, less money, so much better. and it will take place and just one other thing on obamacare, if you look at the premiums that people are paying today, whether they're going up 35, 45, 55% and then you look at the
tv-commercial
5:42 pm
that nobody will ever get to use it, it a total catastrophe and people are realizing it now, and it will be repealed and replaced by me. >> the federal government should get out of the way, as the best means by which we provide the security of health care insurance. i have a plan to repeal obamacare and to shift the decision making on how insurance looks back to the states. with a minimum guarantee of a cat strosk coverage for everyone would be low premium, catastrophic coverage, making sure that we have health savings accounts expanded, port ability, not having mandated benefits. federal government also could play a role in accelerating the approval of medical devices and drugs to make sure that we focus on health rather than reacting to disease. but the federal government's role right now of massive subsidies and big tax increases

5:43 pm
americans to access health care. worry seeing now premiums rise double digit for everyone in and a small number of people have benefited. we could reform the system and create health care for all, but it should not be washington driven. >> you can find all these questions and answers and other issues as well in the politics section of wmur.com. mike: all quiet right now. we've seen an increase in clouds today, a little partial sun. take a look at the time lapse out at the coast where it's been a dry day, seasonably cool. but not all that cold. temperatures running very close to the norm for this time of in. especially from very late tonight in through early afternoon on your saturday. notice doppler radar is nice and quiet. mixed precipitation sitting back through portions of the virginias and carolinas, all streaming up in our direction. gone. but we have to get through all
5:44 pm
